Techy Christmas Gifts For Timeless Memories
By: Alice Murray
This festive season, make memories with the whole family and treat a loved one to a techy Christmas gift they’ll love. Create and savor your most treasured family moments using these must-have high-tech Christmas gifts. Trust us, there’s something suited for every member of the family. Read on for cool technology gift inspiration!
A Digital Camera
With all of the digital cameras on offer these days, there are plenty of options to choose from. If you’re buying a camera for a photography novice, keep it simple with a point-and-shoot camera. Try the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II, or the Canon PowerShot ELPH 180 for a more affordable option. If the recipient has a little more experience, a more complex camera with additional lenses and attachments to help capture the best image possible may be preferable. Look for DSLR camera bundles that offer a wide range of accessories and equipment, as well as the main camera body.
A compact digital camera is the ideal travel companion to take with you wherever you go, letting you capture the moments as you experience them. Better yet, display those beautiful memories on a Nixplay digital photo frame, for the whole family to see.
A GoPro Action Camera
Relive the memories with a selection of homemade family movies taken on a GoPro. A versatile camera that comes with the ability to withstand depths of up to 130 feet underwater (using the waterproof housing provided), it’s virtually indestructible–perfect for any budding adventurer! Using the GoPro app, you can download and edit images straight from your phone to share with your loved ones.
Out exploring without your family? Take your GoPro with you, film your experiences, transfer the clips to your phone, then forward them onto your Nixplay Smart Frame at home with the family using Wi-Fi.
A Virtual Reality Headset
Create fun memories with a virtual reality headset, the perfect Christmas gift for a tech lover. You don’t have to be a gamer to enjoy it–the whole family could immerse themselves into virtual reality and interact with a 3D world. Pick up a VR headset for your PC, PlayStation or smartphone, or opt for a standalone if you don’t already own a compatible device. With several family-friendly games available to buy, a VR headset is something that everyone can enjoy. From carnival games to quiz tournaments, treat yourselves to some family fun this Christmas!
Virtual Home Assistant
From a Google Speaker to the Amazon Echo, there’s a virtual assistant out there for every family home–including more affordable options, like the Google Home Mini. This is a gift that the whole family can enjoy, together. A virtual home assistant can do everything from answering trivial questions, to telling jokes, and even rapping. You can also control several items at home, including lights, door locks, and other smart home devices with just the sound of your voice. Introduce your virtual assistant to your child’s bedtime routine and have them ask it to tell them a bedtime story–it’s something they’ll enjoy doing and it’ll also give you some time off! Better yet, ask it to help you manage your Nixplay Frame by turning it on and off and displaying the playlists you want to see.
Digital Photo Frame
Display all your family memories on a digital photo frame from Nixplay. It’s very easy to use and is the ideal gift for any tech-savvy family member or friend. Enjoy your family photos and videos on a high-definition display with a sleek and modern finish that makes it the perfect addition to any home. And with one tree seed being planted for every smart frame sold, there couldn’t be a better Christmas present to gift a loved one this year.
